Lawmaker demands education minister’s resignation in parliament for bribe remarks
An independent member of the Bangladesh Parliament has demanded resignation of Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid for his recent much-talked-about remarks about receiving bribe. Standing on a point-of-order in the House on Tuesday, MP Tahjib Alam Siddique said Nahid should resign since the present government’s image took a major hit by the minister's “very controversial” comments.

Multiple media outlets recently reported that Nahid, at a programme at Shiksha Bhaban in Dhaka, urged the government officials to receive bribe at tolerable level, saying he has “no moral courage to ask them not to take bribe” since he himself takes bribes and other ministers take bribe.” Facing barrages of criticism from different quarters of the society, the minister several days later claimed at a press conference in his ministry that he was “misquoted” and his comments were “taken out of context.”

Demanding the education minister's explanation in parliament for his comment, MP Tahjib said if Nahid was truly “a self-declared corrupt” then he should resign from his post. He also urged the minister to seek “unconditional apology” in front of the parliament to all, particularly those who are carrying out their jobs transparently, honestly and remaining above all controversies.
